Rev. Graham: If We Don’t Obey God, America Will Face ‘Increasing Wickedness’

Headlines like the one above should raise a red flag for anyone not in support of Mr. Graham’s viewpoints. It may appear simply to be the rantings of an out of touch preacher, but I can assure you there is more to it than meets the eye. Lurking below the surface of this headline is an ideological monster.

Graham made some remarks in the most recent Decision magazine publication (January 2020) which disparage those advocating for freedom of choice, same sex marriage and homosexuality. He also is quick to cite the increase of atheism, agnosticism and no religion among the youth. His goal is fear mongering among the faithful. By sounding the alarm bell of moral decay, Graham stokes the righteous indignation of evangelicals who equate lawlessness with loss of religious freedom.
.
The thinking goes like this. If evangelicals allow society to slip its moral moorings and drift into a sea of wickedness, thus begins the inevitable decline of family values and the increase of secularism and liberalism. Evangelicals will then be righteous nails in a world of evil hammers looking to pound on them at every opportunity. Churches will eventually be closed, Bibles confiscated and the pro Gay lifestyle taught in schools. Abortions will be common place and God all but eliminated from public discourse under threat of punishment. Eventually the American way of life will collapse, once safe borders will open and a flood of immigrants and other religions will pour in.

America the great will cease to be.
